AmritPal Singh has become a millionaire within a year. He did so by selling nonfungible tokens, or NFTs, of his artwork, called Toy Faces.
In around nine months, AmritPal Singh, a designer and illustrator, earned almost $1 million by selling 57 nonfungible tokens (NFTs) of his artwork. Despite working as a designer and illustrator for nearly nine years, Singh only received his first NFT in February.
Singh claims he made it after a buddy suggested that one of his previous creations, Toy Faces, would work well as NFTs. He continues, “I got a few bids right away.”
In addition to commissions, Singh, who is based in New Delhi, India, went on to sell more NFTs of his Toy Faces on marketplaces like as Foundation and SuperRare.
Toy Faces are 3-D cartoon portraits of various individuals and figures, such as Malala Yousafzai, Steve Jobs, and Frida Kahlo. They’re also non-generative, which means Singh has to design each one individually.
He claims that “the most of them are inspired by persons who have inspired me.”
Despite pricing variations, each of the Toy Faces NFTs sold for at least one ether, which is around $4,706 at current prices.
In addition to Toy Faces, Singh created and distributed Toy Rooms, a collection of 3-D images showing various rooms, such as a cave from Disney’s “Aladdin,” a hobbit’s study from “The Lord of the Rings,” and the living room from “The Simpsons.”
This collection reignited my enthusiasm for 3-D illustrations while I was mostly confined to my room in utter solitude.
According to the Foundation, the starting price for each Toy Rooms NFT is roughly 1.22 ether, or about $5,741 at current pricing.
If any of his works are resold, Singh will receive a 10% royalty on each secondary sale. Singh has mostly spent his riches in the NFTs of other artists.
AmritPal Singh has spent more than 30 ether, or more than $141,000 at current pricing, on NFTs in order to exhibit them in the metaverse.
